If he had come out, it would have ended his prolific TV and movie career.
Don''t forget all the commercial sponsorships, R1.
And he wouldn''t even be able to get booked at The Chuckle Hut in Bumfuck, Iowa.
Rosie accidentally outed him on her radio show a few months ago. They were talking about Mike O''Malley from Glee and trying to recall the sitcom he was on, then tried to recall Anthony''s name because he was on the same sitcom. "You know, he was a stand-up, the gay guy from the other show about Boston... you know, the gay guy!"\
Once they named Anthony, someone piped up that he wasn''t out, so they spit out some "allegedly"s. Whoops.
It's funny that Rosie couldn't remember his name because I remember her interviewing him on her 90's/early 00's show.
Anyway, how can this queen not be out? It was always VERY obvious in both interviews and on his shitty sitcom that he's gay.
Come out? Yech, put him in and nail the door shut.
I will always dislike him for playing one of the ugliest stereotypical sissy-fags in movie history in "The Rock" (1996).
IMDB says he's only had 3 roles since that shitty sitcom went off the air in 2006.
He's legendary for being one of the meanest drunks in entertainment, and when I met him about ten years ago I found that reputation was well earned.
he's not sexy so he doesn't have to come out; nobody is fantasizing about him they would say Hugh Jackman or Chris Potter or whoever else is masculine and hunky.
The title of his recent Showtime special hints at this topic. Did anyone see it?
I didn't know he's gay. But then again, I rarely watch regular network television, so I've barely heard of him.
I remember a dozen or more years ago, a National Enquirer story outed him, and at the same time, said he was living like a hoarder.
I read it on Datalounge years ago that during Yes, Dear he was moping around, because his military boyfriend was shipped off to Afghanistan or some other military operation that took place at that time.
R12, you're only slightly less tedious than someone who "doesn't even own a TV."
R9 Tell us more. Is that why he doesn't get much work now?
I always thought he was cute. But then again I like tall and nerdy.
So no one's had sex with this guy?
He's not gay, just deal.
He has a really big schlong.
Wasnt there a blind item on here over a decade ago about him lashing out at a co star on his show for outing him in front of her friends
Yes R22, and reportedly he used a racial slur.
r23: If it was Boston Common, then the actress may be Tasha Smith
It was before Yes, Dear if I remember correctly, which would mean Boston Common. And I do believe it was an actress and not an actor that he hurled the N-word at.
I eat shit. Just deal.
R25 Wow, he sounds like a nasty piece of work. No wonder he fell off the radar.
I also remember reading a BI about a sitcom actor claiming that if his series ever hit #1 in the ratings (or just the top 10, I'm fuzzy on that detail), he'd come out of the closet. This was during the early years of Yes, Dear; it never made it into the top 10.
That's why he's not currently a star.
I think I caught an episode of that show once and I didn't laugh at all. It was stupid and if he was the husband he seemed wimpy.
What moved the black lady to out him?
[quote]if he was the husband he seemed wimpy
In a show called "Yes, Dear" -- go figure!
I saw him doing his stand up on tv very early in his career and he was hysterical. He pinged then, too.
I saw him live at Caroline's in NYC back during the time he was doing Yes Dear. I never laughed so hard in my life. I was also lucky enough to have Jim Gaffigan on the bill too. Both absolutely hysterical.
Anthony Clark cruised me at the bar/lounge at Caroline's after the show----really heavily. But I was there with cousins that night and couldn't break away for a quickie. : - (
I thought he was the guy behind the blind item about a comedy lead bringing a "date" to the set who was an underage boy.
I thought it was Grant Shaud, R36.
I could have participated in his gangbang.
It was Grant Shaud. You're right.
I always wondered why he didn't come out. Did he die? I never see him anymore.
He's the asshole in the movie theater in "Dogfight", the River Phoenix/Lily Taylor movie right?
I always thought he was out. He said something along the lines of why he didnt win Last Comic Standing was because he was too gay. He was being cheeky of course.
What is this about Grant Shaud and the underage boyfriend? I never knew he was gay. Didn't he used to date Jane Leeves?
I met him in a gay bar in WeHo years ago. After hours, tweaker bar. He kept insisting he wasn't Anthony Clark and he wasn't on Boston Common. (Yeah, that's how long ago it was.)
I thought he was adorkable as the dim-witted cowboy in Ellen's '90s sitcom. He guest-starred in four separated episodes during Season 3 as a member of Ellen's book club.
"Boston Common" was fucking hilarious. Didn't last long though.
And anyone who couldn't tell he was gay from seeing THAT sit-com was blind and deaf.
The Landsdowne Street dancing on the roof in Boston Common.
I remember they cancelled it out of the blue, and the series ended with a cliffhanger (about the black lady actress' character getting fired.)
R20 is VERY wrong. He sucked me off in the steam at Equinox and his cock was hard as a rock, not large.
I came in his mouth.
He was in that terribly awful Peter Paige movie, "Say Uncle", and played Paige's gay best friend. I think there was a kiss in there as well.
"Say Uncle" is a great "hate watching" movie.
my friend went to high school with him. said he was horrible even back then. nasty piece of work.
Notorious pussyhound and a big Bush supporter.
He sounds like Aaron Rodgers which is kind of hot
He sucked me off in Nashville back when I was a teenager (he was filming Dogfight). I just wanted to meet River Phoenix.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
